- Latest COVID-19 Update
We are pleased to announce that Mr Abu-Own is now accepting new referrals and offering telephone and online consultations for his Nuffield Health patients. These virtual consultations support patients, and the coronavirus response, in a number of ways. The risk of transmission is reduced as patients don’t need to travel into hospital for their initial consultation. A remote consultation also enables clinicians to speak to patients who are unable to travel to hospital, for example those in at risk groups, in self-isolation or those with travel difficulties. Mr Abu-Own will shortly begin offering some face-to-face appointments for selected patients where it is deemed safe and clinically appropriate to do so. This will be based on talks and agreements between Nuffield Health and the NHS to determine the most clinically appropriate diagnostic tests or procedures that can be safely carried out at this time. This would be followed by a preliminary Covid-19 risk assessment during a virtual consultation to ensure it is safe for you to come into the hospital. Following the review and risk assessment, face-to-face appointments will then be offered for patients who meet the criteria. These are tentatively scheduled to start in the firsk week of August for those on the waiting list, with the Covid-19 risk assessment taking place in the week prior to that. We will let you know once dates are confirmed. We understand that patients may be worried about visiting us in person at Nuffield Health Ipswich Hospital, but we want to reassure you that staff have been working hard behind the scenes to put strict safety protocols in place to ensure a Covid-19 secure environment. For more information, please visit Nuffield Health’s Covid-19 page. Please note that it is important that you only attend Nuffield Health Ipswich hospital if you have been invited to do so. The wait is over! We are here to help you whenever you’re ready. Enquire about treatment or Book a consultation with Mr Abu-Own today.
- COVID-19 Announcement
We understand this is a concerning time for everyone, especially for people at greater risk. As global concern about the current COVID-19 outbreak continues, safeguarding patients and staff remains the top priority. Since 21st March, in an effort to help the nation in its fight against coronavirus, Nuffield Health has made thirty hospitals across England available to NHS trusts. This includes Nuffield Health Ipswich Hospital. While this arrangement is in place, Mr Abu-Own will not be providing any medical services at Nuffield Health. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will provide you with further updates as soon as this status changes. If you already have an appointment or treatment booked with us at Nuffield, it is inevitable that the majority of these will need to be delayed. Nuffield Health will be in contact with any patients with upcoming appointments to reschedule them to a later date. If you do not wish for your appointment to be rebooked and have already paid for your procedure, Nuffield Health will look to arrange a refund for you within 30 days. For more information, please visit the Covid-19 page on the Nuffield Health website. In the meantime, we recommend that our patients regularly consult the latest government advice in order to stay up to date with how best to keep themselves and others safe. Thank you for your continued support during this uncertain time.
